North Korea has become dangerously aggressive.
The dangerous dictatorship led by Kim Jong-Un continues to ignore nations that expressly urge them to stop testing their arsenal.
But North Korea just made a terrifying new announcement.
China is North Korea’s only trading partner.
In the past, China would threaten to cut North Korea off if they continued to defy other nations’ wishes.
But North Korea has grown increasingly volatile recently, and China has proven that they can no longer control them.
And that’s dangerous for everyone because they’re an erratic, unstable country with nuclear weapons.
Now it looks like they’re building more.
The New York Post reports:
North Korea’s U.N. ambassador warned the United States and the rest of the world Wednesday that his country will keep building up its nuclear arsenal regardless of sanctions, pressure or military attack.
Kim In Ryong told the U.N. Security Council that the more than 50-year confrontation between North Korea and the United States came closer to the brink of nuclear war than ever before when the U.S. military held what he called its largest-ever ‘aggressive’ maneuvers with South Korea in April and May.
Since then, he said, the United States has sent B-1B nuclear bombers into South Korean airspace, deployed the THAAD anti-missile system in the country, imposed new U.S. sanctions against North Korea, and spearheaded another U.N. sanctions resolution.
Kim said the Trump administration is pursuing an outdated ‘hostile policy’ toward the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, which is North Korea’s official name.
He said the United States is modernizing its nuclear weapons but other countries aren’t allowed ‘to test or launch any object which goes with the words of nuclear or ballistic.’
“This is really the height of shameless arrogance, self-righteousness and double standards,” he said.
Accusing the U.S. of trying to hold down North Korea and retain a military edge in Asia as part of ‘its dream of world domination,’ Kim said the North Korean people have concluded that to defend their rights and sovereignty they must respond in kind.
“No matter what others say, whatever sanctions, pressure and military attack may follow, we will not flinch from the road to build up nuclear forces, which was chosen to defend the sovereignty of the country and the rights to national existence,” he said.
The U.N. disarmament chief, Izumi Nakamitsu, warned the Security Council that advancements in science and technology in an increasingly interconnected world are making it more difficult to prevent ‘the disastrous scenario’ of terrorists using nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
She said that while globalization brings new opportunities for economic growth and development, it also facilitates the rapid movement of materials and the latest scientific and technological discoveries as well as people with expertise.
Erratic, volatile countries should not be able to possess nuclear arms, and it’s time for China and other world superpowers to put a stop to Kim Jong-Un before things get completely out of hand.
